Check out this Robert Hall television commercial posted by Papajoesvideoscom1: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R2bOwuhAGpU
Hofmann's Church and Religious Goods moved from 261 East 28th Street to the bigger store at 420 East 26th Street after Robert Hall closed. In 1967, Hofmann's was owned by Richard and Frances Hofmann.
I am looking for a photo of Robert Hall on East 26th St., as well as other businesses in this block, from the late fifties or early sixties, taken by someone who lived in Erie. Most of the stores had a similar rectangular building design, so it would be easy to unknowingly mix up locations.
